Let Zara UK be your Shopping Barometer!

Let Zara UK be your Shopping Barometer!

I think it’s fair to say that there isn’t a Personal Stylist out there that doesn’t use Zara as a trusted store for her Personal Shopping clients. Zara owned by the Spanish retailing mogul Inditex has been around since the 70’s and their following has grown exponentially amongst regular girls as well as fashions ‘it’ crowd. There’s nothing embarrassing saying: “This is from Zara” and then bragging about how little it cost you. Mixing designer items with Zara is what allfashionistas do and because the turn around of Zara’s stock is so quick you’re (hopefully) never going to bump into […]

Sales Sales Sales

It’s the middle of January, everyone is broke and the shops are a depressing site, full of the end of sale rails. As a personal stylist I avoid shopping in the sales like a plague and I definitely don’t take any clients personal shopping during this week. Strange how things have changed, before I became a Personal Stylist I loved the sales. I was always looking for a bargain especially if it was a designer piece! Just seeing a significant price drop was enough for me to feel like I just had to buy it. These are the items that […]

Can your clothes really transform your Body Shape?

Can your clothes really transform your Body Shape?

Look at the photo on the left and now look at the photo on the right, if I tell you this is the same lady you’d probably agree with me but if I told you this photo was taken 1 day apart you would probably be pretty shocked! Yes this is my lovely Jency who was amazed at what the power of wearing the right clothes could do for her body shape. Amazed because firstly she couldn’t believe how slim and sexy she could look without having to exercise and diet and secondly just how wrong she had been getting […]

Addicted to Black…

Addicted to Black…

What’s your relationship like with the colour black? This is the one question I always ask my colour analysis clients or delegates during their training. Why? Because the colour black has so many associations tied to it. 9 out of 10 times the response is always “I love it! Why?” Then they look at me suspiciously and the panic sets in as they’re thinking don’t you dare tell me it’s not one of my flattering colours and they’re suddenly regretting ever booking the session. I respond by saying “why do you love it so much?” and these are the kind […]

Style over Trends

Style over Trends

Well it’s that time of the year when we’re bringing our Autumn/Winter clothes to the front of the wardrobe and for many of us despite having lots of clothes we’re still thinking we need to hit the shops and freshen up our look. For some this shop could just entail buying a new coat and some new boots but for others they want a whole new wardrobe and it’s this type of client that keeps us Personal Stylists very busy at this time of the year. Autumn is perceived as the perfect time of the year to invest in ourselves […]

Can I wear prints?

Can I wear prints?

“Can I wear prints?” is a popular question all my clients ask me. The answer is always “yes of course you can!” but where you wear them makes all the difference. Prints seem to have the amazing power to camouflage. Just think of how the leopard and tiger camouflage themselves within the jungle with the help of their printed skins. Unfortunately the same rule does not apply on the body. I often see that the women who want to disguise their heavy bust or their expanding waistline tend to turn to prints as if the print will cover the excess […]
